Christian Pulisic in to prove a point to Graham Potter
Chelsea and USMT winger Christian Pulisic is dreaming of a fresh start at Chelsea and accepts he needs to prove himself to new manager Graham Potter.
Pulisic has managed only one start at the Blues before the dismissal of Thomas Tuchel.
After a frustrating spell under the German gaffer, he looks poised to make things work under Potter.
“I’m feeling good going back, honestly,” he told reporters following USA’s 0-0 draw against Saudi Arabia on Tuesday.
“I have a fresh start now, and I’m excited to play for the new manager. So I’m just looking forward to it. I just have to prove myself, as everyone does, and as I’ve done before.”
Citing his displeasure at being subbed in the game, he said these
“I always want to be in the games,” Pulisic said of his reaction to being substituted.
“I was just trying to score goals and trying to win the game. But it’s good to get some minutes in and I feel healthy.”
“There’s a lot of different ways to score goals, and I think there’s times where we can put more crosses in the box,” he said.
“We can be more aggressive and more relentless going forward. I think [against Saudi Arabia] we had glimpses of it, but just didn’t see it enough.”
